Welcome to Bristol Zoo Gardens


Once you have checked-in and taken a moment to absorb your safari-inspired surroundings, we invite you to explore the Zoo at your leisure. There is a Zoo map enclosed in your welcome pack, detailing talk times and animal house opening times.


The Zoo is open to the public between the hours of 9.00am to 5.30pm in the summer and 9.00am to 5.00pm in the winter months, during which time we invite you to explore the Zoo at your leisure. We also welcome you to explore further after you have checked out of The Lodge on your day of departure.
